Water shots of Phil on his 6`2 Doc Aviso

Here are some water shots of Phil Goodrich from his recent trip to Nias. Phil is pretty much a local at Lagundri Bay these days, and he always makes sure to pack his Aviso!

I also have a bunch of cool photos of Phil in Haiti last month that I need to get up so check back soon for more on Mr. Goodrich…

More shots of the 6`1 Fireblade

Here are some more shots of I took of Cole over the weekend with the 6`1 Aviso Fireblade.

Cole finished shaping the board last week and after making sure that it passed all his inspections he handed it over to me so that it could be taken up to the factory to begin tooling this week.  Cole is such a perfectionist that he shaped the board multiple times, and spent countless hours fine tuning it to pass even his rigorous standards.

The finished product looks truly amazing, I am so proud that we are going to be offering the complete line of Fireblades before the holidays! Check back soon for the first 6`1 in Aviso Technology…

Making sure the rocker is perfect. This board has a super flat rocker for insane speed!

Ian Battrick deep in the wilderness…

Check out these shots of Ian Battrick`s recent trip to Canada with the Turner brothers!

Also here are a couple of quotes from the trip I pulled of the SurfersPath website…

“Every morning and night we had bears all over the place, on occasion even coming right into our camp. One night we even had a cougar fight happening outside our tents. In the water there were killer whales, sea lions, seals, whales… The place is so alive. It’s basically like an Attenborough documentary but with you in the middle of it.”

Sound like fun? Oh yeah, here is another one…

“We were there for three weeks and the first eight days were totally dead flat. Then on the first good day we had, Timmy hit the reef hard pulling into one at low tide, cracking a few ribs and splitting his helmet open. ”

Definitely not a trip for the faint of heart! Check out the rest of the shots below and more on the trip here…

6`1 Fireblade finished, off to the factory for tooling tomorrow!

I picked up the plug for the new 6`1 Aviso Fireblade yesterday from Cole. So stoked, the board looks amazing! It is going up to the factory tomorrow and we could be looking at the first Aviso`s coming down in about two weeks! Just in time for winter:)

The tide is super high around town this morning, but conditions are clean, so it could be fun in a little bit. There is a bit of NW windswell leftover, tide just needs to drop a little. Check back later for more shots of the new 6`1 Fireblade (Area 51)…
